SOUTH SHORE RESIDENTIAL STREET - UNIDENTIFIED THREE - FROM GROWING CHICAGO SITE

 

I think urban design just does not come with more grace and serene qualities than this. Scenes like this were part of a number of Chicago neighborhoods in their prime (and still are in some cases) including Hyde Park, Kenwood, and several neighborhoods on the North Side.

  1. I know exactly where this is. I used to live a block away. The photographer is facing west on the 2700 block just east of South Shore Dr on 73rd St. The lake is a few yards behind him/her. It is a dead end street that had a low concrete wall and a few cement “steps” down to the water and the pilings of an old pier. The tall building is The Coastland on the SW corner of 73rd and South Shore Dr.
